Police Bodycam Captures Teen Reviving Squirrel With CPR After It Ran Into His Car

Police in Minnesota pulled up a vehicle in the middle of the road which had its door wide open, a young man was bent down near the curb, and officers stopped to check if all was okay.

What they saw was amazing, because they saw the teen was performing tiny chest compression on a squirrel lying on the grass on its back.

Chris Felix, the young man, told them the squirrel ran into his car, even though he tried his best to not hit the squirrel.

“I’m trying to help it out,” he said.

Chris had been tending to the squirrel for nearly 20 minutes before the Brooklyn Park Police Department arrived, and their body cameras recorded the whole scene.

The police could see that the squirrel was “coming around,” and quipped that they should “put him up for a life saving award.”

The camera captured the entire episode when the critter was suddenly revived, and ran off to the nearest tree.

“There he goes!” yelled the officer, who gave Chris a high five. “You saved his life, Dude!”

Chris said “Little things mean a lot, in the long run… I gave it my best shot.”

What a fine young man, may God make more caring souls like him in the world.
